Description of key information

 37 NOEC or EC10 values on soil macroorganisms are available covering  6 different worm species and vary from 35.7 mg Zn/kg for  Enchytraeus albidus  to 1634 mg Zn/kg dw for Lumbricus terrestris

Key value for chemical safety assessment

Additional information

37 NOEC or EC10 values cover 6 different worm species and vary from 35.7 mg Zn/kg for Enchytraeus albidus (Lock and Janssen, 2001c) to 1634 mg Zn/kg dw for Lumbricus terrestris (Spurgeon et al., 2000).

All toxicity data are expressed as added Zn concentration in soil, based on either the nominal dose added or on measured, background corrected soil Zn concentrations.

Only one EC10 value for nano was available for Folsomia candida (1678mgZn/kg dw). This value was not added to the previous analysis
